Peach Basil Tart

This Peach Basil Tart is full of bright, summer flavor for a great seasonal dessert!


  • 3 large peaches
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed (I used Pepperidge Farms brand which comes with 2 sheets in a box)
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour, plus a little bit to flour the surface of your workspace when you work with the pastry dough
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest, for me this about equaled the zest from 1 large lemon
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil, divided (or more to taste, if desired)


  • Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside (I used a 10 x 15” baking sheet).
  • Slice the peaches open and remove the pits. Cut the peaches into thin slices (about ¼” thick). Set aside.
  • Lightly flour your workspace surface and unfold the thawed puff pastry sheet onto the floured space. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the pastry sheet out to be a 10” x 14” rectangle. Place the pastry rectangle onto the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  • In a small dish, combine one tablespoon of the sugar with the teaspoon of flour and stir. In a separate small bowl, combine the remaining 5 tablespoons of sugar, the lemon zest, and one teaspoon of the chopped basil. Massage the lemon zest and basil into the sugar with your fingers until combined.
  • Leaving about 1/2” around the edges, sprinkle the flour mixture across the surface of the pastry rectangle. Line the peach slices onto the pastry in three long rows, overlapping the slices. Sprinkle the sugar/lemon/basil mixture evenly over the top of the peach slices.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes or until the edges are browned and the peaches are cooked through and tender. Let the tart cool for a few minutes and then sprinkle with the remaining teaspoon of chopped basil (or more if desired). Cut tart into 12 equal pieces (I used a pizza cutter to slice lengthwise between each row of peaches to form three long sections and then I just cut each of those into four equal pieces) and serve.
